@Drummer230 -- just to clarify, before I kill my seedlings -- Is 1tsp/gallon for syringe feeding the pitchers, or the weekly maxsea watering? And do you flush the media after watering with maxsea, or let it marinate for awhile?

I've seen his stuff, they are spectacular!, and he's putting the solution into the pitchers.
Personally, I do 1/4 tsp per gallon, but that because I also do a spray to foliar feed my Neps, Dews, Pings, and VFT's. I then fill a pitcher or two with that concentration on my Sarrs, but only so I don't have multiple concentrations of Maxsea laying around.
Mine aren't as impressive as his, but they are showing promise.

I'm starting to believe you could dump maxsea powder into a Sarracenia pitcher and the plant would be fine. I might test this on one of my flavas.

I HEAVILY fertilized some Sarracenia seedlings this winter that germinated while in shipment to me last September. They grew remarkably fast and showed absolutely zero signs of burn. I used 1 teaspoon/gallon of Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro plus 1 teaspoon/gallon of Supreme Growers Kelp Blast then adjusted the pH to be between 5 and 6. I used this at every watering for quite a while (I think it was 6-8 weeks and at least 4 or 5 waterings) and they responded amazingly well to it. I never even fertilized them via the pitchers. They were huge after just a few months and are still growing well.

Both! I'm very unscientific with it. I fill the pitchers up with maxsea, and once per week I dump maxsea into the water tray until it feels like enough, and then they sit in it. I never flush the media. As others have said, sarracenia seem to be able to handle tons of nutrients, and they grow much quicker with it.

I'll be hitting the seedlings I got from you with 300 ppm maxsea daily from now on, since I've been running a test with it on one of my neps with good results

Update: I planted 20 of the Darlingtonia seeds from @Matt and 12 seeds each from 6 of the sarracenia crosses. I had to stop after that because I need to save some space in the tents. I'm thinking about planting a few in a separate pot and trying my hand at growing outdoors again. Hopefully this summer is a bit milder
